2nd REVISED AGENDA -- Re: Linux Wireless Mini-Summit -- Ottawa --July 22, 2008
From: John W. Linville
Date: Wed Jul 16 2008 - 15:30:36 EST
I adjusted the times based on the schedule for lunch and coffee breaks
from the OLS crew. I also adjusted the length of some slots, and
move the BoF/Break-Out/BarCamp section before adjourning for dinner.
I'm still looking for more/different topics and for people to
explicitly claim the ones on the list...speak up!
